A man wished to surprise his wife with a romantic getaway, only to discover an ugly truth that would ultimately destroy their marriage.
It turns out that Google Maps isn’t just good for directions; it can also be used to catch cheaters red-handed.
In 2018, Australian outlet News.com.au reported on a man who caught his spouse cheating while using the app to find the perfect tourist destination he and his wife could visit while on their romantic vacation.
While using the “street view” feature to understand the area’s layout better, he saw a familiar figure sitting on a bench with another man’s head in her lap.
As he navigated the Bridge of Sighs in Barranco, Peru, the husband noticed a woman sitting on a bench with a man laying down with his head in her lap.
While both of their faces were blurred, a regular practice by Google when they capture a person, the man instantly recognized his wife’s clothes, hair, and body shape.
In the picture, she appears to be stroking another man’s hair while they sit together in a very intimate way.
Even though the photo was taken in 2013, the man decided to confront her with the evidence of her past adultery.
And she eventually confessed to cheating, reports the Peruvian outlet La Cronica.
The husband would later file for divorce that same year.
Google street view utilizes multi-lens cameras mounted on cars to capture multiple perspectives of a mapped street.
The program was created in 2007 and launched in five major U.S. cities. Today, it’s in over 80 countries.
